The Gay Pride Festival in Mike Pence’s Indiana Hometown Was a Huge Success!

By Hemant Mehta

Vice President Mike Pence was born in Columbus, Indiana, and he was notably one of the most anti-LGBTQ governors in the country. Before joining the Trump ticket, he famously signed a bill allowing businesses to discriminate against gay customers before eventually backing down under pressure.

Still, you know where he stands. If he had the choice, LGBTQ people wouldn’t have a number of rights afforded to straight people. That bigotry is such a core component of who he is, a children’s book about it topped bestsellers lists.

That’s why what happened Saturday was such a big deal.

  1. @OP – Columbus, Indiana held its first-ever gay pride festival. It drew more than 2,000 spectators and was, by all accounts, a tremendous success.

    It must be good for those minorities under attack, to show that they are not going to be intimidated by ignorant faith-bigots!

  2. Meanwhile bigotry in countries associated with theocracies, continue with making discriminatory laws! – with requests from authorities for pretend compliance with unreality of religious dogmas!

    Authorities in Turin, northern Italy, have refused to register the baby of a lesbian couple.

    Chiara Foglietta, a Turin councillor, underwent artificial insemination in Denmark and gave birth last Friday to baby boy Niccolo Pietro.

    Italian law sets strict rules for fertility treatment, making it available only to stable heterosexual couples.

    But Ms Foglietta has refused to pretend sex with a man led to Niccolo’s birth.

    In a Facebook post, the centre-left councillor said “the staff [at the public records office] tell me ‘you should declare that you had union (sexual intercourse) with a man, to get your boy registered. There is no formula allowing you to say that you had artificial insemination’.”
